I've seen both spellings, but which is correct, accoustic or acoustic?
acoustic. Not an expert or anything, but I fail to see why there should be two cc's.
Acoustic. Double 'c' is for words like "accelerate" when you're saying "AC" and "celerate" hence using the sound twice (well two different sounds coming from the same letter) When you say it out loud, you can clearly hear that "acoustic" only needs one letter
Both are correct but acoustic is more often used than accoustic.
There's only one correct way to spell 'acoustic'. Like that. Single 'c'.
However, while not wishing to be a smartass, I must add that Davorunner is incorrect in asserting that double 'c' is (always) for words where one is the hard 'c', and the other, the soft 'c'. Like 'accelerate'.
To illustrate, I've written a short story: "Although painfully shy, Cedric was an accomplished singer, whose guitar was much more than a mere accoutrement; accompanying him wherever he went. He found it helpful not only in enabling him to gain more rapid acceptance from girls he would have been too shy to speak to; when instead he sang to them, accompanied by his ever-present accompaniment, the guitar, but also as a powerful accelerant in the process of sweeping them off their feet, and thus enamoured, accommodating his every desire, and acceding to his every whim. Occasionally, one of Cedric's conquests would become somewhat accusatory in the early light of dawn, but more often he would depart their accommodation to the sounds of acclamation. Cedric was never surprised, he was a very accomplished lover,and it was no accident that he became totally acclimatised to the role as the years went by...
If you are referring to music instruments that produces sound without the use of electricity or electronics, then the correct spelling is "acoustic".
The right spelling would be acoustic as provided in various dictionaries.
well the dictionary should have solved this question but since it's asked.....i guess it should be AC

For several articles, many keyword tools offer suggestions of spellings that should be capitalized, but are often searched for lowercase. Thus, it's tempting to include a few spellings of yugioh instead of Yu-Gi-Oh or star wars instead of Star Wars.So far, I've resisted the urge, but if a few minor...

I've finally hooked up to Google Analytics. Most of my traffic is from the US via Google. Does that mean I should use US spelling to attract more traffic? Or stick to UK spelling (as we use in New Zealand & Australia). Or does it not really matter?
